State officers have no authority to give orders upon the C'onfedcrate States Government fm- transportation. 

The orders of army officers for transportatitui for other than legitimate army business will not be respected. 

'I'ransportation will not be given on verbal orders; and the papers jirescnted must always be in the ])ropcr form. 

The jiractice heretofore existing of sending recruiting oflicers from tlie army has been jiridiibitcd by the Secretary of\Ynr. 

Officers are required to use great discretion in sending details from their commands, and to confine them to strictly 

necessary Imsiness This is urged in conse(pienee of the great abuse in this respect which has heretofore jirevailcd. 
Transportation for guards or details must eudiraci' the whole party. 
Recruits must Imve a I'crtifieate of fitness from an .Vrmy Surgeon. 

(^luartermastcrs nmst always endorse on discharges : " 'I'ransportation furnished in kind."
